Pupils at the school took time out from lessons on Monday to watch Cinderella, performed by Chaplins' Pantos.

The professional theatre group visits the school each year after Christmas.

Sheila Stands, a teacher at the school, said that two performances across the day allow every child in the school to watch and take part.

"It's nice for them because not all families get to go to the theatre for a pantomime," she said. Photo: HELEN SOUTH 6681
